# 1 Portable?
02-21-2010, 03:17 PM
Is STO portable? I.E. Can I run it from a Flash Drive or Portable HDD? I'm debating making a backup install because mine recently became corrupt and I had to reinstall. YAY! 10GB Patch! And I would rather avoid that a second time.

Yes, wasn't sure at first but since I can run it off the other 2 os's without installing it, it probably is. At any rate, you can make backups even if it is since copying your backup back onto where you originally install any program will work, for the most part. There are some special instances where add-ons + expansions have been added and that your backup will be incompatible.

not sure how well STO will run if atall from a flash drive but it is possible to run from multiple os'es without reinstalling.

but being as STO appears not to reqire installing attal it should run faster and better from a flash drive assuming its at least USB 2 and not a rather cheap unbranded model

as above if your flash drive is large enough it could be used as a backup incase STO runs into problems

Cool, thanks guys. I think I'll wait to run it off a flash drive until after I upgrade to USB 3.0, but for now your replies are much appreciated

It tries to be, though its a much less tested (read: we don't test it ourselves) situation.

I've swapped the client over to a few computers and even a thumb drive, it runs just fine as far as i can tell
